Описание: Originally published in hardcover in 2010.
Описание: In post-World War I America-a world teeming with magazines, newspapers, radio broadcasts, and movies-many feared that the survival of traditional, serious books was in peril. This concern led to a publishing boom in fine editions-books valued primarily for their beauty, craftsmanship, extravagance, status, or scarcity. Beauty and the Book is a lively cultural history of the explosion in demand for these deluxe books during the 1920s and 1930s. Megan L. Benton argues that the clamor to own fine books reflected the anxieties and desires of those who mourned the rise of a modern mass culture. For them, such volumes not only affirmed a preindustrial ideal but also imparted social distinction and cultural superiority. Benton combines new archival research with a close examination of three hundred fine editions of the period. In theory, fine bookmakers were devoted to beauty and quality and were unwilling to compromise with machinery, popular taste, or concern for profit. But such ideal standards were nearly impossible to maintain. Paradoxically, fine publishers' ostensible indifference to commercial considerations was one of their most prized and lucrative products for sale. This book illuminates the interplay between the ideal and real nature of fine publishing as well as the complex nature of American cultural ambitions during this pivotal era.

Описание: This impressive volume accompanies the centrepiece exhibition of a year-long celebration commemorating the museum's 20th anniversary and its rich
permanent collection. Approximately one hundred seventy-five of the Hood Museum's finest American watercolours and drawings dating from between 1769 and 1969 are beautifully
illustrated, many published for the first time. Noteworthy works include Benjamin West's elegant Archangel Gabriel of the Annunciation, 1784; from the 19th century, James McNeill
Whistler's lyrical Maud in Bed, 1884-86, and an unusually early watercolour by John Singer Sargent, Cathedral of Saint Gilles du Gard, 1878; and two very fine watercolours by Maurice
Pendergast, Reading in the Garden, 1893-94, and The Harbor from City Point, 1895.
The 20th century collection boasts work by George Bellows, Joseph Stella and "Magic
Realists" Paul Cadmus and Ilse Bischoff. Additionally, drawings by Edwin Dickinson, David Smith and Lee Bontecou, as well as Larry Rivers' Double Money Drawing, 1964 are
reproduced to complete the thorough presentation of this distinctive collection of American art.

Описание: The book tells the attention that Grafton Architects lend to the public role of architecture. The drawings published here gather together personal looks, references and materials relative to six projects of spaces for research, education and culture which have been built or presented at competitions: the Bocconi University in Milan; the extension of the Mackintosh Glasgow School of Art; the new campus for UTEC University in Lima; the Medical School in Limerick; the Toulouse School of Economics UT1C; and the Solstice Arts Centre in Navan. This book forms an archipelago of fragments which, layered over each other, enable us to narrate a way of observing and practicing architecture, between the freedom of inspiration and the rationality of the process.
